I have recently archived bachelor's degree in environmental planning and have a bit less than a year's worth of working experience from planning and cleaning oil-contaminated land areas.

If most of the operational work is done during the winter time, does this mean that the planning is done during the summer? Naturally I do not have much knowledge about the Canadian legislation but I have started to research it a bit and see how if differs from the European one(s). Is there much trouble for the employers to hire people to do planning who are outside the country?

Oil industry is busy all year, there are busier times for different areas of operations, for example the refinery maintenance shut downs occur mostly in spring and fall, drilling operations are busiest in the winter.

I'm not too familiar with environmental planning, but as you can imagine, environmental concerns in the oil sands and Alberta in general are huge, so I'm sure there's some opportunities there for you, keep searching.

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.
